What happens when medical or technical immortality is possible, /lit/? Will it invalidate writings on the impermanence of life?
Thanks though anon. The inevitability of the end constantly plagues me whenever i stop to think. I've stopped going to movies because every second i watch i can feel the end of existence coming closer. What do i read to help me come to peace with this?
surely it makes it all the more special?
I like to think that in the future we can determine exactly when and where the next stages of our lives begin and end. So in an instant, we can become a Monarch butterfly, and then return again to our state of being.
even if we get rid of cancer and aging or even hunger we will still have accidents. barring that, eventually all the stars will die, unless some force from outside our universe acts on them like in book of the new sun.
